If I had to describe the type of jewelry I make I would say it is part mermaid, part cowgirl. It has always been my aim to create pieces of jewelry that are beautiful, feminine and unique, but also durable, substantial, and a little bit bad a$$! And the Paniola (Hawaiian for Cowgirl) Pearl & Puka Necklace is all those things!
Eleven stunning iridescent Edison Pearls (approximate size 10mm) are strung from large in the center to small at the ends. Hugging each pearl is a pair of puka shells, bright white, and perfectly surf polished. Each set of pearl and puka is separated with a small knot, showcasing the unbelievable natural beauty of each trio.
The 22 inch necklace is created from a 6 ply hand twisted medium brown rope cord with easy to use shell toggle closure. Just slide the small pearl up and down to open and close the loop.
Mermaid meets cowgirl, mauka meets makai in this one of a kind handmade piece.
